How to immigrate to Canada from Nepal?

If you're thinking of relocating from Nepal to Canada, you're in good company. Every year, a sizable population of Nepalese residents embark on the most frequent route to a new life in Canada. Nepalese residents will typically choose Canada because, compared to other migration barriers, your chances of successfully immigrating to Canada are high.

Around 1,000,000 qualified travelers are required in Canada during the coming years, and the country is very open to accepting immigration petitions from Nepalese citizens relocating there.
